Eddie Hearn predicts Tyson Fury will fight Joshua vs Usyk winner in December

“But he is not retiring and he won’t vacate the belt, and that is what I expect to happen. If he does retire, good luck to him; he is the master of his destiny and if he wants to walk away from the game, fair play to him.

“But I don’t think he will. I think he will fight the winner of AJ vs Usyk in December. It will be for the undisputed championship, it will be a huge fight financially, and it will be a legacy-defining fight. It will put the winner down as what we call a generational great.

Tyson Fury has vowed to retire following his stoppage win over Dillian Whyte

“If AJ beats Usyk and then goes on to beat Fury, he will go down as one of the greatest heavyweight of all time. And if Fury beats them, Fury goes down as that, and I think he is about that and trying to become great.

“I think he will want that one more fight, and our focus now goes onto AJ beating Usyk – and he can fight Tyson Fury at the end of the year.”

Joshua and Usyk’s rematch is expected to be held in Saudi Arabia, though Tottenham Hotspur Stadium – the site of the fighters’ first in-ring meeting – was long touted as a potential location.

Usyk’s promoter Alexander Krassyuk this week expressed a similar sentiment to Hearn: that “you cannot trust what Tyson Fury says” as regards his retirement.
